I know you had good intentions, but there are fact checking sites out there - they may not be flashy or fancy, but behind the scenes you have a lot of journalists, independent fact checkers, databases full of historical logs and changes, and a more honest approach.
One useful way to check out a source like GR is to cross-reference their overall track record with reporting the truth…and boy is it abysmal – https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/global-research/ so, while sometimes they do have valid, accurate reporting (less than 10% of the time…) the entire site is littered with inaccuracies, false reporting, or twisting of the truth, and is VERY often agenda-based or agenda-driven articles with little focus placed on the facts (if it even bothers to accurately source the facts). The fact checking sites provide exact instances, articles, sources, and are willing to sign their names and stake their reputation on it, and they consistently uncover similar patterns regardless of which fact checking site you use. So, while those fact checking sites like MediaBiasFactCheck or FactCheck or Politifact or Snopes or LeadStories or ScienceFeedback or APFactCheck or ReutersFactCheck or FullFact or CheckYourFact may not be perfect 100% of the time, they try incredibly hard to deep dive sources and uncover the truth for us with every resource they can bring to bear, and they link pattern abuse of certain unsavory websites, journals, and authors better than we (as one article consumers) ever could. They are amazing resources! Please use.
So, while I did not watch the video you linked, just based on the source alone it has an astronomically high probability of being laced with mistruths, inaccuracies, or outright lies. And even if they are calling on experts within the relevant fields, that’s not to say there aren’t 1) tin foil hat conspiracy theorists within every field or occupation, or 2) their interviews are being spliced, edited, or cut out of context, BOTH of which this site has been caught doing repeatedly.
This GR isn’t a case of “oh, 1 of our bloggers or opinion writers is a bit out there…” they are blatant, aggressive, site-wide astroturfing and conspiracy pushing. At least some sources try to provide both sides while entertaining extreme views, this is not one of them.
Again, zero offense to you. Sites like this are designed to draw in clicks, views, have great reach on social media, and many people end up sharing their posts. But we are better than that. All of us can help protect each other, because this misinformation campaign online is not new – it’s as old as language itself, just wearing a new coat these days. So please, lets help each other out and lift each other up!
